Candied Sweet Potatoes
I always pierce and then bake the potatoes. This way their natural juices caramelize when they come out of the potatoes. If you boil the sweet potatoes then you boil all the flavor out and you depend on a lot of other stuff for flavor. This recipe is great-but best way is to make sure you taste to your liking using the ingredients given here.

Maple Baked Pork Loin Roast
This was a big, big hit with my family. My daughter can be a picky eater and yet full of surprises. She, my boyfriend, and I loved this recipe. This was my first time making a pork loin and it was a success and will be a repeat recipe. I used a loin just a lil over two lbs for the 3 of us and we had plenty of leftovers. Made with garlic mashed potatoes and french cut green beans.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
This was the best meatloaf ever. Made it tonight and daughter never wants to eat meatloaf and she loved this. Had it with red skinned mashed potatoes and green beans. My boyfriend and our daughter and me couldn't stop eating it. I did double the sauce and put the sauce on top instead of bottom for last 15 minutes. I also put two slices of wheat bread on bottom to soak up grease and it gives a nice flavor that tastes great with the sugar in the sauce. I also did as others suggested and I added a tbsp. each of Worchestire sauce and liquid smoke. Will never make another meatloaf recipe ever!
